The Help You Need After A Ladder Fall
The process of filing for work-related injury claims — including third-party or wrongful death lawsuits — is complex and requires the help of seasoned legal counsel. At Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., our attorneys focus their efforts solely on workers’ compensation, combining experience and knowledge with dedication and diligence.
Construction professionals who come to us are encouraged to focus on their recovery and other personal matters while we attend to the details of their claim. Rules involving the safety of ladders and other “high places” (scaffolds and tall buildings) on a construction site are governed by strict regulations.
Handling All Aspects Of Your Injury Claim
The first step is identifying the party responsible for the accident. Employers and employees are immune to litigation as workers’ compensation insurance covers them. However, if a contractor or subcontractor working on the construction site causes a fall from a ladder, we file third-party claims on behalf of the injured worker. Even a landowner — whether on or offsite — can be held accountable for serious injuries and wrongful death. Accidents that lead to disabilities often lead to a Social Security Disability benefits claim.
The pain and suffering from an injury is combined with stress of an uncertain financial future. At Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., our lawyers remain at the side of our clients and grieving family members following a ladder fall. Throughout the course of their case, we attend to every detail of their case — providing information and updates as needed — and fight to maximize their compensation in one or multiple claims.
